Book Club with a Tea Tie-In

322 Replies

My order of Czar Nikolas II “St Valentine” tea has arrived!
It’s a blend of Black tea, Rose Petals, and Safflower. It has a very heady rose aroma. This was my pick to accompany the book, so if anyone wants to sample it, I have PLENTY to share. Just PM me your address & I’ll send it out right away.

I would love to sample some! I am following you, so you can PM me, or follow me… (I’m new here and don’t have any teas up yet, but I’ll get there, I promise! And I am looking very forward to tea swaps and just plain ol’ sharing!) I just started reading AK last night.

I can’t wait to try this! I love rose teas, my favorite so far is Harney’s. I think I sent you my address already?

OK, I have both of you and ThreeWhales.

Anyone else?

I’d like to try it! If you want to try Republics Anna Karnina tea I can send you some.

Where are you shipping from, Terri?

Steph, I’m in St. Louis. The samples are on their way!

As a dog lover, I adore when books have dogs in them. I was wondering what Laska means, which is the name of Levin’s dog and here is what I found:

Sounds as though there are quite a few possibilities, but I find it charming because I call my own dog Weasel as a nickname.

Josie Jade said

Aw, I love it. It’s odd that there’s kind of a range of translations, right? I’m going to go with the ‘kindness’ meaning, although ‘weasel’ is cute too. :)

If I’m not too late to join in, this sounds lovely. I’m longtime reader who has just discovered the joys of tea. This sounds like a perfect book club to inspire me to try both new teas and new books.

Serenity said

Hi, Cate, nice to meet you! So glad you are joining!

Josie Jade said

Welcome Cate! Thanks for participating. You can message either Serenity or myself if you’d like a sample. Or feel free to use another Anna K.ish tea. :)

I hope everyone has received their samples. I keep feeling like I’ve forgotten someone, if I have please let me know! :)

I received mine over the weekend…. Thank you very much!

Cavocorax said

I just got mine today! Thank you! :) This tea club was a great idea. I’m nearly done the 3rd part of the book and there’s so much left, I don’t even know what to expect will happen!

I’m covered! Thanks!
I still have LOTS of the St Valentine tea from Czar Nicholas II. If anyone wants some, let me know. It’s a black tea, heavy with roses & fruit.

I am surprised how easy this book is to read. I am really enjoying myself!

Josie Jade said

Me too! I’m really starting to get into it now that I’m on break. I was surprised that it is easy to read as well, I thought it would take awhile to get used to.

Uniquity said

I always thought it would be a tougher one – translations can make a huge difference though. Which one are you reading? I hope to get to AK sometime in the next few years. : )

Serenity said

Me, too!

I love browsing on etsy and I was looking at scarves and stumbled upon this:

What a creative idea!

Josie Jade said

Oh I love this! How pretty!

How’s everyone coming along? I’m on chapter 20

Josie Jade said

I’m on the third part, I think my book maybe divided up differently because when I looked I saw I was on chapter 6 and I got really confused. Time to get reading – January 25th isn’t too far away. :)

Cavocorax said

I’m on page 526/1037 in the kindle edition. I think that’s chapter 22.

So much has happened already that I’m surprised I’m only halfway through.
